s saying it. from that moment on, there's been a growing crescendo from the right, roe v. wade. soldiers to this army. it's become a huge fund raising tool for the republican party. it's a way for republican candidates to nurture their base, rev up their base. >> as a political reporter, i think a huge part of it is the nature of the conservative base of the republican party and the degree they care about abortion and also the chamber of commerce and the degree they care about -- >> i just want to see one democratic president say i am the president who is devoted to the courts. i want to see -- i'm going to make that priority. >> we don't see that because of interest groups. >> you didn't see it in clinton or obama. >> they have identified this asymmetric polarization. the republican party moved further to the right. they threaten filibuster reform, the nuclear option when they have a majority and democrats haven't yet. >> excellent point. one counter example -- >> nominations, younger than the democrats. there's asemitrihere. >> a lot of people thought affordable care act was

the obama campaign. david axelrod, jim margoli s, jim done llan, they care about this. if they didn't think the ads worked, they would use the money elsewhere. chris hayes is right, we are going it see more and more advertising moving to the internet because more people spend time on the internet and less time on television but there's going to be a compensatixe compensation structure there. i think we're tilting at windmills and i think it's the wrong windmill. bain and taxes would not be an issue in the way it is in this campaign without advertising. >> right. we should make this point about ads. there's the primary effect of an ad which is you see it and what impression it makes and second airily if it gets picked up by the press, and there's research that suggests that does have an effect. >> even at the beginning the mainstream media tended to dismiss the bain ads. most of the comment on it was negative. after two or three weeks after people saul results in the polling, they said those ads were working, then they picked it up -- >> that's a serious issue. the polling tells

biggest corporations. do you think "fortune" is -- >> that's great point because it c queues s up the situation. if you were an evil jegenius wh wanted to control the minds of the american public the thing you would do is go and buy a newspaper like has happened in philadelphia. i want to hear you talk about it from your side which is if i'm a conservative in philadelphia and i hear that ed rendell is getting people together to buy the local paper, i'm thinking we're screwed. the conservatives are never going to get a fair shot in the local paper or ed rendell's buddies aren't going to be investigated if they're doing something wrong. that this is going to potentially be no a perception racket. >> he said hedge funders are going to sell. can you put together a local consortium to keep the people here. that's what i did. people not caring about their specific ideology and some of the people are very conservative as well as some people are very liberal put it together, local ownership. i turned down a finder's fee which was, i think, $1.8 million. my son has never for griffin gir do
